I have added an Epic from the Backlog screen in JIRA Agile, however it never shows up in the list of epics (which is empty)
Some more information:
this is more kind of a feature than a problem -
in a sprint (your work board) you simply don't work on an epic but on stories and subtasks instead which you break down out of your epics. A epic is just a too big object to resolve it in a sprint or even in multiple.
Epic is more of an object for clustering your tasks / projects on the backlog and for tracking the progress of the epic and its stories and tasks.
We also have the same problem which is a problem when we are working on an epic with multiple teams. Each team has their own project and all have the stories within the same epic. Unfortunately, the epic only shows up if we apply a specific label and query for it. This is very inconvenient and we miss stories unless we apply the label workaround. A few months ago, if a team had an issue under an epic, it would show up on their planning board. Now it needs to be queried explicitly.
I would advice for each team to have their own epic if each team already has their own project. That way each team can see how many stories they're responsible for and how many are left. It also helps define when a team is 'done' with an epic. You can then create an epic of epics for project managers to tickle each other over.
Then put every epic-issuetype in your issuetype scheme for the project KROWD and create an issue with every of the 4. there should be only one which doesn't show in the backlog as an backlog item. this one is the one and only you should use - every other can be deleted or atleast should be renamed.
Thanks for your response! I assigned the "Epic" issue types to my Scheme one-by-one and was able to identify the correct one. Now when I add an Epic, it no longer shows up in the sprint planning backlog. However, on creation I get the following popup: "Your epic XXX has been created but is not currently visible." The Epic still does not how up in the Epic Panel. Any ideas? Thanks
